Subject: Why serum?
They had Doc Adams from "Gunsmoke"
so why did they need this special
serum? The man could fix broken
bones, gunshot wounds and parachute
in to install a supercharger. He was
a Titan before Chuck Norris.
Reviewer: Dr Feel Rotten - - January 1, 2011
Subject: entertaining, but the acting was weak
Seems every 8th movie back then involved a 'special serum" to save someone and someone else had to either fly, ride a horse or take a train to get it..How come they used all those serums up?
...and what the hell did they toss in a song and dance routine for? That's right...ALL millionaire broads back then had "talent"...choke, choke..between the sheets presumably.

Still well worth watching.
